Hi,
I am customising my fiddler script and was hoping to get the response body as a base64 string, is this possible?
I tried the following:
var bytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(oSession.GetResponseBodyAsString());
var base64 = Convert.ToBase64String(bytes);
FiddlerObject.log(base64);
However this did not work. I am probably missing something really obvious.
The response body is a PNG.
Many thanks
Pete

Hello, Peter--

You don't want to get a binary body as a string, as that's inherently lossy.

Instead, keep the bytes as bytes

        // Remove chunking & compression
oS.utilDecodeResponse(); 

        // Get raw bytes
        byte[] arrBody = oS.responseBodyBytes;

        // Convert to base64
        string sBase64 = Convert.ToBase64String(arrBody);
